The Writing with Grace classes will be taught live on Tuesday nights, starting October 25, 2016 and going through November 15, 2016. But if you can’t watch on Tuesday nights, don’t worry!

+ Do you have to be a Christian to take this course?
You do not need to be a Christian to take this writing course. However, Ann is a Christian and talks openly and consistently about her faith in Jesus and how that impacts the writing life.

Specific exercises and hand-crafted assignments will allow you to take your writing ability to the next level.

+ Can you tell me about the editorial feedback option and one-on-one coaching calls that Ann is offering?
If you participate in the Writing with Grace Memoir course, you will also have the chance to reserve an editorial feedback slot and a coaching call with Ann. These are optional but can only be reserved by students taking the course, and they are very limited in number.
Editorial feedback option: If you reserve the editorial feedback option, Ann will edit and (lovingly!) critique a section of your memoir (of up to 1000 words of text) for you. Along with content editing, Ann will include a paragraph of encouragement, challenge, and insight for how to move forward with your particular piece. The editorial feedback will be done via email, and your feedback will be sent to you in a Word Document or PDF file. Your piece will need to be sent in by the final class date; Ann will return her feedback to you no later than the end of January 2017.
One-on-One Coaching Calls: If you reserve the editorial feedback and the coaching call, Ann will edit and critique your piece (see above), and she will also schedule a one-hour coaching session to talk with you about your memoir, writing goals, and next steps. You and Ann will find a mutually convenient time to talk; all coaching calls will be completed by the end of January 2017.
